Summary, etc.: "Contrary to popular belief, Italian food is the perfect cuisine for those looking for heart healthy and diabetes-friendly dishes. Real Italian food, that is, which is healthful, delicious, and the most popular cuisine in the world. At its core, classic Italian cuisine is all about preparing fresh ingredients like fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, legumes, dairy, seafood, and poultry in time-honored techniques that preserve both tradition and flavor. In the Italian Diabetes Cookbook, award-winning author Amy Riolo looks to honor this tradition with 150 easy-to-prepare, satisfying, and robust Italian dishes that can be enjoyed by the whole family - while helping fine food lovers everywhere achieve their health goals. Inspiration for this book came to Amy when she visited her ancestral hometown of Crotone, Italy, for the first time. Each recipe includes notes on the history and cultural importance of each dish, and most contain wine pairings - an essential part of any authentic Italian meal! Highlights include: Ricotta, Grilled Eggplant, and Fresh Mint Bruschetta; Whole-Wheat Ziti with Goat Ragu; Swordfish with Olives, Capers, Herbs, and Tomatoes; Red Pepper, Yellow Tomato, and Artichoke Salad; Espresso Panna Cotta; and many more!

"This book will help the reader see that Italian food is not off limits for people with diabetes. It will help change the way Italian cuisine is viewed abroad, and demonstrate ways in which traditional Italian food can be part of a diabetes-friendly eating plan"-- Provided by publisher.
